Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham to join the Binge Racing team as co-driver in the upcoming 2013 SNORE/MORE Chili Cook Off / Midnight Special race in Lucerne, California.
Binge Racing has invited Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham to join them as co-driver in the upcoming 2013 SNORE/MORE Chili Cook Off / Midnight Special race in Lucerne, California. Wheelz is an extreme wheelchair athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada who performs tricks adapted from skateboarding and BMX. Famous for the first ever back flip, appearances on the television show Thrillbillies, and tours with the Nitro Circus Live shows, Aaron has a passion for what he does. He wants to change the world’s perception of people in wheelchairs, as well as helping everyone see his/her own challenges in a new way.
This will be Wheelz’ first adventure into desert off-road racing and he and his sponsors are excited. Binge Racing’s Bryant Layton came up with the idea and luckily Aaron’s busy schedule allowed time for the race. “We started talking about a replacement for our co-driver Bill Davis who was badly injured in a recent automobile accident. I got Bill on a conference call from his hospital bed and he said he would be honored to have Wheelz fill in for him at the next race.” Aaron’s response was “I’m so pumped man! lets do this! Thank you Bill and Bryant! Such an honor!”. “We are the ones who are honored!” replied Layton.
Binge Racing competes in the 2000 class with their famous Jeep Cherokee with past awards such as 2010 Lucas Oil Regional short course and 2011 Mojave Off-Road Racing Enthusiasts (MORE) class 3700 championships under their belts. The team also donates time and energy each year to the “Powder Puff” race which generates money for breast cancer research at Cedar’s Sinai Hospital. Binge Racing’s sponsors are Alpha Video Surveillance, Gibson Exhaust, and Jonco Integrators.
Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham’s sponsors are Box Wheelchairs, Unit Clothing, Schwalbe Tires, Frog Legs Suspensions, Bones Wheels and Bearings, Spinergy, Fusion Suspension, Osiris Shoes, True Dentistry, Kicker Audio, and Dizabled.com.
